Mike and I sit at our banquette, side-by-side computers, tippity typing away at highly important ice cream business. Mike is designing "Buy 10, get one pint free" cards. I'm...Oh, wait, I'm blogging. Nevermind.
Recently Mike was interviewed by the Colorado Springs Independent, who wrote this teaser article. The interviewer must have misunderstood Mike, hence our mythical children in this article. Still, fun stuff.
We've been receiving the various items Mike has ordered necessary to run a gelato shop, and thus our 2nd bedroom is crammed with sundry items such as laminators and waffle cone makers. The most fun part is the books. We will have book shelves above our built-in fireplace, so Mike has ordered a delightful assortment of adventure and children's books for our library. All the books we would want to own and read and read to our children, like Huckleberry Finn and The Secret Garden and The Tales of King Arthur. I believe I'm going to want to quit my job and curl up under the fireplace and read every last one.
Mike has written a couple of other updates on his blog. Construction is on target, and everything seems to be going swimmingly, despite the occasional panic attack.
Tonight I sit here swimming through job applicants. Note to self, when posting a job listing on Craigslist, do NOT include your phone number. You will get roughly 3 gabillion phone calls.
I was put in charge of sorting through resumes ("Commandress in Chief," as Mike puts it), as we thought I could be more heartless, and therefore quicker, than Mike in weeding people out. But now reading through these resumes, I wish I could give them all a chance. It's hard to read through so many resumes of people who need jobs. It makes me so grateful for the one I have.
